China's National Meteorological Center renewed a yellow alert for rainstorms on Saturday, as heavy downpours are expected to lash parts of the country.

Based on reports from Xinhua news agency, the weather forecast predicts intense rainfall and thunderstorms will affect certain regions of multiple provinces in eastern and southern China between 2pm on Saturday and 2pm on Sunday.

The affected areas include parts of Guangdong, Guangxi, Jiangxi, Hunan, Fujian, Anhui, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang provinces, according to the weather center's advisory.

In particular, certain areas in Guangdong and Jiangxi will experience torrential rain, with rainfall of 100-180 mm, according to the meteorological center.

Local governments have been urged to cut potentially-dangerous outdoor power supplies and suspend outdoor operations in open areas.

The center also suggested implementing necessary drainage measures in urban areas and farmlands.

China has a four-tier, color-coded weather warning system, with red representing the most severe warning, followed by orange, yellow, and blue.
